This period, the first after Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s cancellation, marks the first Next Generation film and the debut of Star Trek: Voyager, the first two seasons of which aired alongside seasons three and four of Deep Space Nine.
Despite the demise of Next Generation, Q still managed an appearance on the second-season Voyager episode “Death Wish.” The Borg, however, did not; although they would later become a mainstay of Voyager, producers wished to wait until they were used in a Next Generation movie. Interaction with the original show was greatest in Star Trek Generations, which prominently included James T. Kirk and featured cameos by as Montgomery Scott and Pavel Chekov. It also introduced Hikaru Sulu’s daughter, Demora Sulu. In addition, the Mirror Universe was featured in two episodes of Deep Space Nine.
This period contains a total of 94 episodes — 52 of Deep Space Nine and 42 of Voyager — plus one movie (Star Trek Generations).
